The Laboratories of Democracy sometimes fail

Ah, the states, those laboratories of democracy. The idea is to see if a policy works in one before using it in another, or before taking it nationally. But if something fails in one state, why would you take it up in another.

President Trump bad-mouthed NATO allies who weren’t paying their agreed-upon support to the alliance. He was criticized for that, but guess what’s been happening?

BE LESS CHIKIN

Chick-fil-A gives away a lot of its profits to charities. Recently, they made an announcement that seems like it was trying to appease those who protest it. I’ll explain my thoughts.

Getting sued for $2 million for exposing the truth is bad enough. Losing your case is worse.

The British Universities and College Union has decided to drop objective truth. If you are lily white and say you’re black, you won’t get an argument from them. We’re losing objective truth in academia.

Whistleblower hits close to home?

The whistleblower has been fired! That darn Donald Trump; how could he? No, not that whistleblower. This one was fired by those protecting the identity and job of the other one. Ironic.

If the Senate has to take up the impeachment trial this year or early next, this could cause an awkward situation for some Democrats running for President.

Richard Dawkins, noted atheist, is changing his mind about Christianity, or at least about how the idea of a belief in God changes behavior. He’s not converting, but he’s seeing how the lack of such belief (that is, how human nature on its own) doesn’t seem to work as well.

Brian Kilmeade

I had the honor (once again!) to interview Brian Kilmeade, of Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends”. He has another book out with a deep-dive into an historical event called, “Sam Houston and the Alamo Avengers: The Texas Victory That Changed American History”.

While the story of the Alamo is familiar to most, few remember how Sam Houston led Texians after a crushing loss to a shocking victory that secured their freedom and paved the way for America’s growth.

You can buy his book at his own website or on Amazon.

Episode 271: #SaveJamesYounger

James Younger

A 7-year-old boy is the latest victim in a sexual orthodoxy that will not let you disagree with it. The father is trying to save him from a gender transitioning that he is convinced was brought on at the urging of his mother since the boy was 3.

Can a 7-year-old really make that kind of decision?

Good news and bad news

This time out I’m talking about good news and bad news on the medical front.

The good news is that one set of parents in the UK succeeded where the parents of Charie Gard and Alfie Evans failed. Is it a trend? I hope so.

The bad news is that, in Canada, if you can’t afford your health care, they’re certainly willing to help you die.

The 6-year-old and the cricket

A funny Facebook post from a friend of mine shows the similarities between what a 6-year-old does with crickets and what our government does.

A college student looking for beer money comes into a windfall and does the right thing with it. One reporter decides to smear him. The results say more about the reporter and today’s Cancel Culture(tm) than it does about the college student.

New York City is backing down on freedom of speech and freedom of choice restrictions. Guess who you have to thank for that?

Episode 267: The Smearing of Brett Kavanaugh

Brett Kavanaugh being smeared again

There they go again. Democrats are ready to declare Brett Kavanaugh guilt over one more unproven allegation. We have a judicial doctrine in this country; innocent until proven guilty. The Left have decided to dispense with it yet again.

Instead, it’s all about politics. Listen in to this episode which is slightly-more-than 10 minutes or less.
